, what harry reid said. we know it's true because we've been reporting on this show really since the gun debate reignited after newtown that it's not just because republicans oppose it. it's also because of democrats, particularly in the senate. in fact, if you look at, we have a set of compiled -- some faces and names of democratic senators. if you look there's about a dozen. these are senators who have either outright said, no way to assault weapons ban, or those who run from us in the hallway when we try to ask or somewhere in between. the reason is most of them come from states where they're the whole concept of gun rights runs very wide and very deep. it would be cultural heresy many of them think to ban any kind of gun and to vote for that. the senators here may support other gun control like background checks or limiting high capacity ammunition clips, even trafficking, and so the thinking and it really has been all along, is that if they put the assault weapons ban in this broad gun control package, then the whole thing will go down whereas if they take it out, and put it as an a

overwhelmingly with republican support and opposition on our it was suggested to harry reid that that might be one way to get off the lack of action on making sure america pays its bills. the only reason i interrupt the gentlelady, i think it's important to understand your cut, cap, and balance passed before that suggestion was made included sequester as the fall back if we didn't reach the numbers. i think if it's the president's -- it's the president's via cut, cap, an balance which your side of the aisle passed and sent to the senate as presumably good policy. i thank the gentlelady for yielding, she was kind to do that. mrs. miller: i thank the gentleman for pointing out the sequencing of the sequester, the president's sequester, and i still say with the president's sequester, what's going to happen with this vote is a vivid nonstration of who is actually committed to doing more with less. my colleague, the gentleman, the minority whip, had also given a sort of historical lesson of various things under, in his observation of the way things had gone earlier on and i would point something
